Anyway, I'm too freaked out to play ZombiU or Alien: Isolation; I guess they're not my kind of games.
The expanded field of view and brighter lighting take away from the claustrophobic feel, but I like that they added new melee weapons. It's interesting that they removed the local multiplayer as Watch_Dogs implements the King of Zombies mode as mobile challenge, incorporating smart phones and tablets as player two.

Haha! Good thing I already have plans for all three NA dates. Sheesh, at least on Xbone they give us a week.

I enjoyed Groove City. Sorry to see I'll never get to play SoR. Maybe I'll fix up my PC soon.

Have been enjoying this on my s6.

Will get this one of these days.

I want the amiibo bundle. Have been enjoying NES Remix games with friends lately. This will blow them away.

As soon as the video ramped up to 60fps I knew I couldn't resist. Looking forward to it!

I've enjoyed this on Android, but haven't purchased on PC or Xbox because reasons.

@Captain_Gonru I feel your pain. Just switched to android after two years with 920 and 1020s. Hopefully MS will release info on new Lumias, but they've been acting very much like Nintendo with Windows Phone....
@rjejr I've said it before, but if I can't find the amiibo I'm not buying this game.
Sir420 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:
@AugustusOxy When you say "[Youtube] has also made me realize 'this isn't my kind of game' and has prevented sales too," You're expressing that Nintendo would rather sell people a game they don't like than make informed purchasing decisions? You may be right about that, but it's a sad, cynical statement.
Sir420 commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:
I am honestly surprised to see how few indies on Wii U are built with Unity. I could have sworn I've seen the logo on the system and I don't have Teslagrad. Giana Sisters?
Sir420 commented on Video: Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power is Shap...:
@FLUX_CAPACITOR One thing to take into account is the advanced lighting, shadow, and particle effects. Not to mention rendering a few large items, such as in Mario Kart8, is easier than rendering many smaller items, like Diablo III, which ran poorly on Xbone/PS4 until a patch. Speaking of Mario Kart, Nintendo has a way of programing for their own hardware in a way third parties, especially indies, are not as successful with.
I would expect Frozenbyte will be able to run this game on Wii U with scaled down resolution and shaders/effects.
@AVahne, don't forget Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain, Street Fighter V, Tekken 7. I am super pumped for all of those, although I'll have to wait longer for an Xbone iteration of Street Fighter...
[EDIT] Corrected Ground Zeroes to Phantom Pain.
It looks great. The controls are spongy in Trine 2, and that looks like it will be the case here judging by the jumps into the wall. As far as I'm concerned, this is a must buy no matter what systems it arrives on.
Sir420 commented on Nintendo Download: 9th April (North America):
Definitely grabbing Affordable Space Adventures.
Nice Watch_Dogs sale. Between GTA V and Far Cry 4, I'll be OK without it for a while.
Sir420 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:
I've already spent over $400 dollars on Smash, over $600 if you include amiibo. I don't mind spending $6 more on these awesome costumes.
Edit: FYI: Got 1 Wii u copy, 4 3DS copies, 2 White Smash Gamecube Controllers, GC adapter, and 2 additional Pro controllers. Around 15 amiibo, mostly at retail price.
Sir420 commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:
Great list of games...for those who don't already own every single one. LOL! Sometimes it doesn't pay to be a super fan.
Sir420 commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd April (Europe):
Yeah. Xbox it is!

I am patient, sitting with backlog a-plenty.

This is pretty cool. Of course, I backed Shovel Knight and played it on Wii U, but now I have a reason to get it on my shiny new Xbone.

@vitalemrecords Do you realize you don't actually have to read this article? Anyway, gotta go play Paparazzi!
Sir420 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:
@Kaze_Memaryu Exactly. In fact, I have two brand new gamecube controllers that work on Wii U. Further evidence of mocking.
Sir420 commented on North American Release Date Confirmed for Duck...:
Time to dust off that HOTD Hand Cannon. Those ducks won't know what hit them.
Sir420 commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams GamePad Sound Pa...:
Excellent! I've been a squeaky wheel on this for some time. Have let the game rest while we've been waiting. Despite its less than tight controls, muttering frame rate, and level pacing issues, this is a great time waster and challenge.
Sir420 commented on Black Forest Games Confirms New Giana Sisters ...:
Great game with some issues. Will finish it once gamepad sound is fixed.
Sir420 commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:
Regarding Wave 2: on November 8th I preordered Luigi, Zelda, Diddy Kong, and Captain Falcon, but online and in town. Every pre-order is marked as canceled or delayed till January 15th. I found Zelda on the shelf at another store in town.
Sir420 commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:
@SKTTR I understand where you're coming from. My experience with Nintendo is that it takes them YEARS to drop the price on their big games, so I usually just buy them at launch. I'll splurge from time to time, like with Bayonetta 2, but just expect to budget for first party Nintendo games.
@Ryo_Hazuki-san You know I'll be there, bro. Love your posts.
@schizor Indeed. Check out my miiverse posts on the subject!
@Goob I did not notice any tearing. Frame rate is a fairly smooth 30 with minimal dips, but nothing to be upset about. Much better than ACIV. Shadows are not the nasty hashmarks in Splinter Cell and ACIV, but are a very smooth gradient, which is very welcome. Texture filtering is sort of crappy, but I can live with it. Over all, I am impressed with the performance! It looks like the delay was worth it.
Sir420 commented on GamePad High Capacity Battery Now Available in...:
I'm going to have to agree with the majority. I always plug it in when it gets low. It's only a problem if we're playing Nintendoland, which, to our shame, we have yet to complete.
Sir420 commented on Interview: Dakko Dakko on Scram Kitty and his ...:
Stop telling me about this game and just take my money!
Sir420 commented on Giana Sisters' Halloween-Themed DLC Not Hittin...:
Those updates do need to go through review, which can takes weeks at the least.
Sir420 commented on Video: You've Got To Be Quick To Catch This So...:
This looks like a beating. I would have played very similar to whoever was in this video. The frustration with getting that red ring at the beginning, getting damaged at the boss for dumb reasons... and I just can't stand how target locking enemies destroys momentum. I will give this a rental, but I doubt my opinion will change.
Sir420 commented on Mighty Switch Force! 2 Dousing the North Ameri...:
@rjejr seriously. I love me some demo.
Will pick it up tomorrow if it's 9.99. Love the pixel look of Pixel Patty in MSFHD.
Sir420 commented on First Impressions: Shovel Knight:
This was my first game backed on Kickstarter. After all the promising releases this year, I decided against this in the future unless the project is low on funding. With Shantae, Ghost Song, Mighty No. 9, and more, I'm glad the outlet is there. I'll just be one of those who buys through eShoo/Steam.

@ricklongo As a father if three, I enjoy having bite sized gaming opportunities. Kung Fu Rabbit is pretty cool, especially for $2.49.
Sir420 commented on Two Tribes Confirms Toki Tori 2+ Level Editor ...:
@sillygostly very sensible. I wish more people exhibited such wisdom. The gaming market would be in a better place.
Disappointed, but thankful that they're being cool about it. It just goes to show, don't pay for something based on upcoming features. Make sure you like it as-is.

Sir420 commented on News Site Claims That Zelda "Takes A Dim View ...:
@JoostinOnline I have no problem with people pointing out flaws. That's give and take, conversation, discourse. What I call "being defensive" is people not even giving these ideas a chance. A quick look through the above 200+ posts will show a completely dismissive attitude by most. Is the Salon article flawed? Of course, what isn't (yes, that includes Zelda).
In your previous post, you say "More than anything, it's people's obsession with searching for stereotypes that make them continue to exist." I disagree. I say that it's a lack of understanding diverse viewpoints that continues stereotypes. Angry, dismissive attitudes towards opinions other than our own prolong this lack of understanding and strengthen stereotypes.
Ignorance may be bliss, but it is certainly not healing or helpful. Education is the answer.
I expect this post to be dismissed at least as much as those I've made above. As I've said before, NintendoLife is not a healthy environment for this type of discussion. Take what I say with a grain of salt, but at least try to understand where I am coming from. Thank you for this exchange. You are welcomed to have the last word; I am finished with this comment thread.
@Neram Honestly, I think it's important to be aware of unintentional offenses. Can you live your life in fear that you will offend someone? No. Should you do your best to help rather than hurt? Of course.
If you'd like to look up the error of a privileged mindset, I'd encourage you to do so. As I've said previously, NintendoLife is clearly not the forum to discuss social theory.
